The downtown shots were taken during the celebration of Detroit's 250th birthday in 1951. Photographer used a telephoto lens exclusively which detracts from what otherwise would be interesting scenery of that era.

Pretty dull movie featuring a neverending whirlby of building after building. Gets monotonous after awhile.
